I am one of the ones who got all my money back without asking for it (what this thread is about)
I went on this thread right away wondering what was going on. Barry reached out to me at once and explained the situation (even though he was in New York busy as hell)
I decided then and there not to keep the fire burning by posting stuff in this thread(even though I was a bit uncertain about the situation) and instead communicated directly with Barry. I told him about my hesitation putting all my money back right away and he was a totally cool guy about it. In fact he recommended that I wait a bit until things got back in order. From there, every time I have had a question he has responded promptly back to me and he has never pushed me to get back in
Others might have had a different experience but I have had nothing but positive dealings with Dutch Pinball so far.
Everything that has been a concern here in this thread has been taken care of.
Those who wanted their money back is getting their money back.
They hired Roger Sharpe to deal with the last licence problems.
They have gotten 2 new (from what I can gather) solid guys to take care of DP USA and ended the Phil Account
All this in a little over a month from a small new Pinball company. Not too shabby, if you ask me.
I decided that it is time to show DP some support and just got back in on the pre-order. (ps! I did not have all the money right away. Barry was cool about that also and we worked out a solution effortlessly)
Sorry for being a happy camper and ruining this thread for some of you, but I felt it needed another perception. (Not from the Dutch folks who have been positive all along but from one that was first skeptical if this company could get back on their feet after the Phil business)
